The Rhône Valley became a prestigious wine region upon arrival of the Romans in 125BC, when it is said that the Syrah and Viognier grapes were introduced to the region and are still widely planted throughout the region to this day. The wine growing areas within the Rhône region cover approximately 200KM from Vienne in the North to Avignon in the south.
For the purpose of undertaking a Rhône wine tour, the region is divided into the Southern Rhône and the Northern Rhône. The wines produced in each region vary according to the grape type, the soil and the climate. See here for detailed information about the areas, and here for information about the wines.

The bottom line is that is was fantastic. I have been on a number of tours and tastings over the years but this was by far the best. Thank you for organising it for me!
